Tadayuki Satoh Seminar

Mr. Tadayuki Satoh Sensei is one of the world’s leading Japan Aikido Association experts. He was taught directly by Tomiki Kenji Sensei, founder of the Japan Aikido Association, in the living room of his house every Sunday before tea, and so he has an in-depth knowledge of Tomiki Sensei’s Aikido system. He is also an accomplished judoka. His father received his 8th Dan in Kodokan Judo and was a contemporary of Jigoro Kano.  Kano urged Satoh's father to send him to train in Aikido because judo was meant to be more than just competition.  Sato Sensei, was granted the position of Shihan of Waseda University Aikido club in 2007. This position had been vacant since Professor Tomiki’s death in 1979. He is an expert in his field, and in particular, the link between Kodokan Judo and Tomiki-style Aikido. He also teaches aikido at the Japan Police University, and he lives in Tokyo.
